    Anyone interested in having a gathering in this area. Would need a place with possible room for camping maybe close motels etc. Need some one to head this up if at all possible.

    Anybody live in the New Holland Pa, area? Just a thought Meadow Creek Smokers hold a spring auction and sale maybe they would interested in holding this they seem to have the space. Would be great for their line of smokers to demonstrate them they also have a BBQ supply store. Just my idle mind thinking!!!

    Whether I could make it wold have a lot to do with the actual location and rough tome of the year.  I think you need to settle on those before folks can be expected to tell one way or the other if they have interest.  Northern PA or NJ, I'd likely be in, much further south (say past central NJ) and I'd be out due to distance.

    Just my $0.02....your mileage may vary....

    Thanks for starting the thread.

    That would be the goal. We will see. Sponsoring an event this year would be very unlikely, logistics, medical reasons, getting the Wife onboard, but Fall 2017 has some possibilities. My middle Girl is getting married Sept 2017 and wants a Pig Roast. I would have a better handle on managing a gathering after that...JJ

    Man for sure family and health comes first. What area you moving to?

    Had a lot of looks but not much response going to have to find a place first I think but that's hard when you don't have any idea of how many. I've read the reports on other gatherings and it seems like a lot of fun. It may take a year to put it to gather.

    I would love to attend an event like this. I'm in NEPA, pocono area....but it's hard to plan for something far away, especially with my work schedule (I work every other weekend too :( )

    I think once the date and place have been set, you will see more interest and replies from those that have been looking at your thread.

    The hardest part seems to be finding a group of people who can start/organize/plan an event from ones idea into a real gathering.

    I would be more of a guy who could help closer to an actual date of: "how to help, what to smoke and how much beer to bring."

    I raised my family bouncing around between Lancaster, York and Dauphin Counties. Two of my three Girls live in the Mechanicsburg area. So we are looking more rural in that area...JJ
